… courtesy of The Washington Post. The piece reads a bit like it’s a press release from the Cloud Council. The author, Michael Skok, both conducts surveys about cloud computing and invests in cloud computer. Which came first, the survey or the investing? Place your best here.
Here is my favorite factoid from the article:
A survey commissioned by Citrix in 2012 found that a majority of American adults didn’t understand what “cloud computing” meant, with 51 percent believing that stormy weather could interfere with it and 54 percent saying they never used it — even though 95 percent actually did.
I’m posting this because it is clearly needed, though perhaps the executives I consulted with in 2011 have since figured it out and have moved beyond using “the cloud” as an alluring buzzword they knew nothing about. A few days later, I graciously resigned my VP post. Snobby? Perhaps. Have they published their app yet? No, they have not. I suspect some of the data because electronically charged in the cloud storm.
